Hinata Saotome is suddenly asked out by En Shinohara, a gorgeous boy in her grade. What she doesn’t know, though, is that his hobby is cross-dressing! En has always hated men, and whenever he sees his own reflection, he punches out whatever is doing the reflecting (windows, mirrors…). To combat this hatred, he dresses up as a girl. Hinata decides to go out with him anyway, despite his weird hobby.

Also included is an unrelated one-shot from volume 8:

Sweets Honey
Serizawa gets sick whenever she smells something sweet, but she likes a boy named Miura who has an extremely sweet tooth.

Included in volume 16:

Boy's Lily
A spin-off of Usotsuki Lily where En is a normal guy who recently started dating Hinata whose hobby is dressing like a guy.

this manga was a good read for someone like me who gets to in to the drama and gets a headache from it all b/c it's to heart wrenching .So if your looking for a romance comedy without all the heavy drama and heartache , this is a manga for you. But the characters in image there are to many of them that look alike and it kinda makes you a little confused . That will be the only complaint that I have other wise i really enjoyed this manga.

It's been so long since I read first 80 chapters I can't really remembered what happened in them, so this might not be a completely fair review.
I liked this series. Towards the end, the main couple were sidelined more and more as the side characters got their own plots, mainly to do with them pairing up. This was fine for a while, but I would really have preferred to have the main couple participating more in these chapters. The last arc from going to Italy and then Hinata's soul searching was less than gripping, but I read it for the sake of completing the series. It wasn't so bad, just that it came at the end of a series which was progessively getting closer and closer to average and using more and more repetitive jokes and situational comedy. What was refreshing was that even at the very end the usual shoujo cliches were parodied.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I did, however, feel that the sub-plot of Hinata thinking she was pregnant (and then not being pregnant), and En's reaction and behaviour to all of this (especially when he proposed that they have a child...while still in school...?), was out of tune with the rest of the manga. It was unneeded and essentially pointless, except that it conveniently finished off Hinata's soul searching episode.

Perhaps I'm being too harsh. While the ending was lacking, the first half of the manga is funny. It is more of a comedy than a romance, but the romance is more refreshing because of that and there's not great dramas to Hinata's and En's love (at least none that isn't slap-stick).

It was cute at first, but I couldn't tell characters apart and they treated some serious matters as a comedy, but I suppose that is to be expected in shoujo.

I couldn't tell people apart after awhile nor remember names except for Hinata and Shinohara because I couldn't become interested in the characters.

This manga started out cute and funny but lost it's luster a bit. By chapter 55 the plot is almost nonexistent and the jokes/situations get repetitive. The whole series is supposed to be tongue and cheek jokes but after a while you do what progression.
I may return to this series after a bit, I do like the art and dispite it's repetitive nature it is easy to read and enjoy. Just don't expect philosophical drama and action.

This series started of good and was really enjoyable and funny. But now it's getting repetitive with little plot progression.

Edit May 2014: Well it's gotten bearable again for now. But it's still nowhere near as enjoyable as it was before.

It was quite the story when it first started. A great unorthodox love story if I ever saw one. Slowly more and more characters where introduced, characters who joined the main cast, but that was all good, the more the merrier right? Wrong. After a while she started focusing on the many side characters more and more, making the main characters turn into pretty much extras. The mangaka herself even points this out. What this makes me think is that she has lost interest in the main characters and she's doing all she can to extend a series that should have ended many volumes ago by writing episodic chapters about her side characters.
I don't mind that the plot is all zany, I welcome it, and I have both cried and laughed with this series, but what I don't appreciate is the direction or lack thereof that this manga is taking. I don't see an ending in sight and sadly that's all I still want from this manga.
I still recommend this highly if you're in the mood for a laugh, although lately even the jokes have lost their edge, so maybe read the first volumes and then drop it when you start to get bored because it doesn't get any better, really.

Just a funny gender-bender

I'll just highlight the points.

-This is primarily an episodic, gag-based rom-com. Includes a TON of fourth-wall-breaking.
-The main couple become bf/gf right away, so there's no waiting as far as that's concerned.
-There's a very wide cast of characters; we spend a lot of time on the secondary characters.
-The male lead dresses like a girl because he loves females and hates males. Other characters of both genders crossdress frequently. There are bonafide gay, lesbian, and bisexual characters as well.
-I'll re-emphasize, this is mostly gag. There's occasional serious moments (like when the girl is trying to get her dad to accept her boyfriend's odd habits) but don't read it for those.

In sum: This series is perfect if you want constant goofball hilarity without a whole lot of depth, and with a ton of characters that dance all over the gender spectrum. And since I do enjoy that, I find it a pleasure.

Alas it has none of the 'moe' elements associated with gender-bender, cross-dressing and the likes of such genre. I gave up after struggling through 6 volumes hoping for at least some depth in the plot.

So damn funny

I've read alot of Komura Sensei's works and I have to say; this might just be my favorite one. Why? Because it makes me laugh and that is something not many manga and Mangaka do. It may even be in my top five of all time.

The thing about Usotsuki Lily is that it doesnt take itself to seriously. Actually, I think it makes of point of destroying our expectations of anything to dramatic. Even with all the parody and gags, it still manages to be completey enjoyable. All the characters are lovable (seriously, you can't hate any of them) and they all seem pretty human (most of the time).

It may seem like Hinata and En are the main characters (and they are) but in reality, I think that the manga is about the group of friends. Honestly, Usotsuki Lily wouldn't work unless it had a splendid cast. En and Hinata's actions wouldn't fit and it would end up being a boring regular manga. From the super sadistic, though suprisingly masochistic best friend, Naota, to the weird talking sword otaku, Kenjirou, you'll feel a sense that they belong there and are definetely needed. Same with straight man Taiyou and En's foil of a brother, Ten. Together... The manga is amazing.

The best thing, in my mind at least, is the explanation of "manga time" as I refer to it. Often you'll see at least five valentine day in one series (if it goes on for too long) and the same for pretty much any big holiday. Yet... It seems like no time has passed and the characters are still in the same year as they were when the first Christmas/New Years/ Valentines day happened. It doesnt make much sense and leaves you a little annoyed. But, in Usotsuki lily, the characters openly admit that though they are getting older ( I think by chapter 71 the Main characters are 18 and in second year still. Lolz) they still stay in the same year, AND without getting held back. (Poor Ten, forever an exam taker.) Komura sensei even went as far as to repeat the same chapter setup twice, though admittedly with different results. Its refreshing.

So, if you are in the mood for a pick me up, or something that will make you laugh, I suggest Usotsuki. It has pretty damn good art and the plot (or the lack of any real one) is good too. En-joy!

the relationship between En and Hinata is cute
yet En is a freakin cross dressing guy who will smash his face when he looks into a mirror -.-
she's like this really adorable girl that just looks awks when she is dating a tall hot chick -.-
but they look cute when En is hi normal self XD OR when Hinata cross dresses as a guy XDXDXD
how they make each other jealous is just kinda weird and complex cuz they do it their cross dressing -.-
& ALMOST EVERY CHARACTER IS LIKE WEIRD -.- like Hinata's brother & all those guys at school who like En (even after they knew he was a guy), En's brother who like guys & En's whole family -.-, and all these random characters that cross-dresses -.-
but i guess it makes the manga funnier and more interesting wink
